Sunburst By Susan May Warren

by Susan May Warren
Publisher: Revell
Series: Sky King Ranch
ISBN: 9780800739836

Whew, I was looking forward to reading book two in this series, but I didn't know HOW much I was going to LOVE this story! I was sent this book for review from Revell.


When former Navy SEAL and lifelong bachelor Ranger Kingston is called upon to take part in a rescue mission to save his brother Colt from terrorists in Nigeria, he is shocked to find among the hostages a woman he could never forget.

Noemi Sutton was attempting to return a young girl to her family in Boko Haram territory when she and the girl found themselves taken hostage, along with several others. And while Ranger Kingston may be able to get the hostages away from their captors, he'll need Noemi's help if he ever hopes to get out of Nigeria alive.

Her solution? Pose as husband and wife. But when her uncle discovers the union, he insists on a traditional Nigerian wedding--which would bind Noemi to a man destined to break her heart. Worse, the trouble they're fleeing has found them--again. It's clear anyone around Noemi is bound to be caught in the cross fire. Including her potential new husband.

She'll need to figure out a way to leave the man she loves if she wants to save his life.

My Review:

There's nothing better than feeling completely satisfied when you finish a story. That's exactly how I felt when I finished Sunburst! I really didn't want the adventure to end.

I loved getting to know Ranger and Noemi better at the beginning of the story.

Book two begins seamlessly from book one. We're dropped into Nigeria where Noemi is being held hostage. The author REALLY brings to life the country, the danger, and the beauty. The way Ranger and Noemi are reunited and their "adventure" they have as they flee to safety. Oh my gosh, the suspense of it all had me in a constant state of nail biting!

Then, I forgot there was the mystery woman who showed up at the Ranch at the end of book one. It was interesting getting to "not" really know her at all. hahaha The author just builds the suspense on that end as well.

There is a LOT going on in this story! It was SUPER interesting to me how all of the dots started coming together towards the end. Of course it has me dying to get my hands on book three, but also dreading that the series will be over. hahaha I also love how characters from other stories I've enjoyed by the author (as well as ones I haven't read yet) make appearances in this one.

There were quite a few of the back and forth of Noemi and Ranger of "misunderstandings" of their relationship. You'll see what I mean once you read the story. I did kind of get to the point of "all right already", but could see how their past (and currently) that they'd struggle with knowing what's going on with each other. Trust me, read the story and you'll get it.

I think Ranger and Noemi have become one of my all time favorite couples!
